COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In celebration of the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library, Diamond Bear Brewing Company introduced its seasonal beer, Presidential IPA. This in beer terms is a "big beer" with lots of flavor. This India Pale Ale has a rich copper color and full body which delivers exceptional body, balanced by a high hop rate. This beer has great aroma with generous amounts of cascade hops to stimulate all of the senses. This is truly a beer fit for a head of state!

Aroma - heavy floral, citrus, subtle spice notes; Appearance - deep copper, almost opaque, very fluffy head, fantastic lacing; Taste - faint malt sweetness up front, basic hop back, sharp tangy finish; Palate - extremely overpowering crispness, good body; Overall - crisp mouthfeel completely kills a large majority of flavor, so much potential yet so disappointing.
